what i would say
2 June 2002 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

The Crown Prince Rudolph and Baroness Maria Vetsera are brilliantly played in this motion picture.i highly recommend it to anyone interested in late 19th century Austro-Hungarian history. But bear in mind that the movie, although marvellously done, was based on Anet's book, which is a novel based on the story of what actually happened, so there will be some anomalies, and scenes which did not actually take place. But it is a fantastic movie, Mason's portrayal of the Emperor Franz is particularly superb. I have been trying to locate this movie but I cannot find it available anywhere for purchase, anyone who knows how, please contact me.

The tragedy of Mayerling is discovered by each new generation, and with each of those generations, the mystery of it becomes unsolved again. It continues to fascinate everyone who has delved into it, and I am no exception to this. The movie is a marvellous introduction to those discovering Mayerling, but it could be misleading for those looking into it for the first time, from a research point of view. I recommend it particularly to those who know more about the Tragedy, so they can appreciate its brilliance as a movie, and learn the exact historical facts for themselves. With compliments, elisabeth, uk.
